Something has been on my heart today that I just wanted to put out there...I'll make it brief.
My pastor said this morning that he has never heard anybody say that they wanted to spend eternity in Hell. So I was thinking, are the sinful "pleasures" of this world so enjoyable that they are worth spending "life after death" in the misery of Hell? Our priorities are so out of line. We should enjoy things that please God; how did we ever come to think that the best things in life are things that our Savior abhors? He never said it would be easy. If it were easy, if we didn't have to sacrifice, what kind of commitment would that be?
"What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?" --Mark 8:36
